    Nothing to add.

    I loved everything, particularly the fact that this accommodation is very central and allows us to discover the beautiful village of Alter do Chão, with its incredible castle and typical streets (both possible to visit day and night). We were even lucky to have had the opportunity of arriving to this amazing small town when it was its municipality bank-holiday, so we had a fantastic concert outside, where we enjoyed very much ourselves.

    Bed was too hard and found atmosphere to be sorely lacking. Staff not helpful and wouldn't recommend this hotel. The soundproofing in the rooms was awful.

    Lots of hot water and location. Very easy to walk into town.

    We ate our evening meal in the restaurant and it was very average.

    Our room (superior double) was enchanting. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable and the large terrace a bonus. Lots of communal seating areas with comfortable chairs. The breakfast was plentiful and the whole character of the hotel delightful.

    The rooms are very spacious and clean. Staff are very friendly and helpfull. The views from the garden/pool are beautifully. I travelled with my mum to visit relatives. We had to check out at 6 am and they had breakfast prepared for us at 5:30 am. They offered us free massage as well when we arrived. Food is a bit pricey but is to be expected from a 4 star hotel. We are already planning our next visit to this amazing hotel.:-)
